Route Options:

The 3rd-class gully is easy to climb up and down unroped when it is melted out but can be more challenging if there's snow. This picture show a snow field near the bottom of the gully that was a pretty sketchy traverse on our way down w/o ice axes or crampons (we left them at the bottom of the pyramid).

The ridge is mostly 3rd/4th class with a few short low-5th class sections. It was dry the whole way and had plenty of rocks to sling and rap anchors for pro.

The whole summit pyramid is sprinkled with rap anchors so rappelling is an option for the descent.
